X6 E71 / E72 (2008 - 2014)
The BMW X6 luxury crossover went on sale in April 2008 as a 2009 model year. BMW referes to the X6 as a Sports Activity Coupe (SAC) as it combines the attributes of an SUV (high ground clearance, xDrive and all-weather ability) with the stance, styling and roof line shape of a coupe. The E71 X6 was built off the E70 X5 (2007 - 2013) platform at BMW's Spartanburg, SC plant. Total worldwide sales were just over 235,000, sold mostly to the BRIC countries. US total sales was 34,082 vehicles.

X6 Siting

I was driving on Highway SC11 in upstate South Carolina this morning and spotted a trio of X6's on a test drive. It appears they were headed for the mountains. If I were interested in an SUV (SAV) this is definitely a vehicle I would consider. They are not as big as an X5, closer to an X3 in size but more sporty.

They are supposed to be something like 1.9 bigger than an X5, and also slightly wider. Are you sure they were X6s?"

Yes - they were "desiguised" by weird paint/stripe schemes that may have made them appear smaller. They were X6's.
